Cotton Candy covered Marshmallows. :D
Second attempt at digital painting. :nod:

So, yesterday, for some reason, after uploading that Rarity pic, I felt really depressed for no real reason. So, I sketched this, because I wanted something sweet and warm to draw, make myself feel better. And it worked. I had so much fun with this. :D

WhiteDiamonds was still a bit of influence, but there was more of myself in this one. I really like how Rarity's mane came out. :iconrarityishappyplz: I'm a bit amazed I managed to get this done within two days, rofl.

This is probably my last of the digital paints for a bit. I plan to start another comic next, because everybody seems to like those.

Unless this gets tons of faves and love, in which case, probably will do another one of these. I'll see how it goes. :iconcutepinkiepieplz:

So, I hope you all like this! Comic will likely be next!

im going to write a Critique BECAUSE IM BORED OUT OF MY MIND! so... first of I have to say is that the eyes and the shading is gooooooooood. Second, I love the detail and the smile on pinkie pie. Third, the eyelashes need a check and pinkie pie looks a bit insane, but she is so that's ok! Anyways I don't see many problems in this DeviantART art. XD I SAID ART TWICE! I love how pinkie pie is hugging rarity so tight. SO FLUFFIN CUTE! :meow: I like the giant grin on pinkie pie also! Its awesome! SO AWESOME. :meow: that's all I got to say, and love the colors!
What do you think?

Indeed, very sugary sweet. A basic portrait of a duo that I don't see very often. At least not together like this. A nice framed image of Rarity's soft smile along Pinkies ecstatic "CM'ON AND SMILE!" face.
However, in a case such as this I feel like a plethora small errors added up and distracted me from the overall value. The biggest problem with all forms of art isn't that it's flawed, but that the flaws were clear and visible to the audience. Maybe it's just me but some of the flaws stood out and kinda set me off. Not to say this was poorly done, I will get to that later.
The first thing I noticed were the eyes. Easy enough, as they are what convey the most character in most cases. Most of the eyes consist of a bright ivory with deep irises and pupils. But what about those shadows? The shadows seem a bit deep to me. It would appear that the light would be coming from either the front of them or a little to the left of them. So are those eyes protruding from their eye sockets a little? As far as the rest of the eyes go, it might have behooved you to raise Pinkies hair curl slightly up out of Rarity's eye. Food for thought.
The other big concern of mine is the shape of Rarity's head. It almost looks like the left side of her face was accidentally glued to Pinkie's cheek and they were trying to pull them apart while maintaining a proper smile for the camera. The shape of Pinkie's seem exceptionally normal but it looks as though Rarity was given kind of an oblong curve.
However, (there's that word again) everywhere else seem nice as far as technique and colors. The right tone here, the right shade here, the right texture for her hair. And that is what really grids my gears, the fact that the only issues I have with this painting are in the dead center of the picture. Right where most of the attention is received.
